New, comments

Randall Cobb was cleared from the concussion protocol, putting him on track to play on Sunday in what could be his final game in Green Bay.

NFL: Green Bay Packers-OTA Milwaukee Journal Sentinel-USA TODAY NETWORK

On Thursday, the Green Bay Packers practiced for the second time this week as they prepare for their final game of the 2018 regular season. Thankfully, the Packers got some good news on the injury front, as several key players returned to practice after sitting out of Wednesday’s practice.

A pair of Packers received clearance from the concussion protocol on Thursday, allowing them to return to practice on a limited basis. Wide receiver Randall Cobb and offensive tackle Jason Spriggs got their clearance, suggesting that both will play on Sunday against the Detroit Lions. One other player remains in the protocol and appears unlikely to suit up this Sunday: rookie wideout Equanimeous St. Brown.

Joining Cobb and Spriggs on the field Thursday after sitting out the day before were left tackle David Bakhtiari, defensive lineman Fadol Brown, tight end Jimmy Graham, and linebacker Clay Matthews.

Meanwhile, Detroit also had a few key players improve from DNP to limited on Thursday as a trio of starters suited up. Wideout Kenny Golladay, cornerback Quandre Diggs, and nose tackle Damon Harrison all practiced, suggesting that they will be available come Sunday afternoon at Lambeau Field.

Here are both teams’ reports for Thursday, and stay tuned for Friday’s game status report.
